With the development of time and the progress of science, we are exposed to more and more new things, but when our standard of living increases, we need to improve some of our needs, such as the necessities of our life, taps, we need to use taps in every household, but if the taps are opened and closed too many times, they can easily break down. How do we choose a durable faucet?
1. See the material of the faucet
Over the years, faucets have come in a variety of materials. The common ones on the market are alloy faucets, copper faucets, stainless steel faucets and ceramic faucets.
After comparison, it is best to find stainless steel faucets; of course, ceramic faucets can also be used as a choice to enhance the high-end bathroom quality; if you choose a full copper faucet, before using the faucet will be open for half a minute, and let the water off, to avoid excessive intake of lead; alloy faucet is not recommended to use.
2. Look at the quality of the valve core
The faucet needs to be switched on and off numerous times, so the first thing to consider when buying is whether it will last for a long time. When the switch is active, the active part of the faucet is in the spool, so if you want it to last a long time, you’ll need to look at the quality of the spool. The quality of the spool can be judged by whether it can withstand a long-term drip-free test, which is a test of the life of the spool. The national faucet testing standards clearly states that the switch of the drip-free test requirements of not less than 200,000 times the switch.
3. Good faucets have a bubbler
To see if the faucet is good, it depends on whether I have a bubbler or not. The purpose of the bubbler is to prevent the water from spreading and make the water flow more straight. I don’t know if you have noticed that some of the water from the faucet is soft to the touch and is a small bubble. This faucet is bubbly. If you are going to the store to buy it, you can feel it on the spot, the water flow is soft and the bubbles are rich, which means that the quality of the bubbler is better, the bubbler usually has six layers, good bubbler is made of high quality stainless steel mesh, you can see the tray. Many brands of bubblers can also filter impurities from the tap water for particles. If the water quality in the area is poor, the tap water will gradually decrease. Once the bubbler is turned on, it will return to normal.
A good faucet is a must in our lives. This will not only prevent our faucet from affecting our normal life due to leakage, but also make our life easier and faster.
